FOREST PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914

FOREST PROTECTION. -+---- The ruthless destruction of valuable timber in which the early pioneers indulged, perhaps has its excuse in the fact that quickly cleared land Was indispensible for their requirements, while, the absence of .an extensive local market prevented any fore. thought in the direction of planting seodlin'gs to supply the deniands of 'futurq generations, Now-a-days any such excuse is impossible ; for even in our young land we are unifortun ately beginning to visualise the No. miaes which attends the reckless des ,trihction of growing. things. Climate and the.all-iziportant rain fall' averagq has jieen completely re. volutionised, times without number, in, thd od world, by the wholesalc slaughter of innocent trees,; while in Australia much ol the herbage in thr 'astoral 'districts has been' handled unnecessarily cruelly in this respect.

LATE SUPPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914

LATE SUPPERS. Lato suppers are a common ca .p.of insomnia, especially that form of it ln which peoplo fall into a heavy sleep, only to wake with a start an hour or so later. Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that suf fSciont time should bo allowed for the last meal to be disposed of before the hour of retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which. often means that half past eight is, as a ruto, late enough for the evening meal. In any case the food which is taken then ought to be of light naturo, and not includo pork, cold meat, or any other article of diet which is slow of digestion..

SUBTLE CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914

BUUTLE CRITICISM. The small boy stood in front of theo dnsaling light of the cheap theatro with a yellow dog under his arm. Evidently he wanted to got in, and the sight of a well-dressed and apparently prosper ous man on the steps gave him an idea. "Are you the manangor of the show P" asked the boy. It turned out that he had guessed correctly, and the' lad continued: "I want to see the show, but I haven't got the money. I'll toll you what I'll do. I'll give you this dog if you'll lot me in." The manager's heart molted.. He remembered that he too had been a boy. "You may go in," he said " but never mind about giving me the dog, Take the dog along, witl you." The lad went in with the yellow dog under his coat. After the perform ance the manager was still standing in front, and happened to see the urohin oome out. "Well, sonny," he remarked, "how did you like the showP" "Dh, pretty well," he said; "but I'm jlad I didn't have to give you the dog,

OVER DEVELOPMENT OF MUSCLES. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914

OVER DEVELOPMENT OF MUSCLES. In all systems of physical training the only aim and object is to maintain health. I cannot agree with the methods whose aim is to pile up lumps of musoles on overy part of the body, a doctor explains. An advertisoment showing a man with a bioops like a leg of mutton on his arm is enough to do tormine me to have nothing to do with that system, Those muscles are ab solutely useless unloss you want to go on the music hall stageo as a strong main, or wish to convert yourself into a human earthorso. The strain put on the heart in the process of acquir ing those disfiguring hunks about the body countoracts all the good that the exercise might have done. The im portant organs of the body-the heart the lungs, the liver, and the kidneys- derive no benefit from abnormal musou lar development, Many trainore have a good working knowledge of museu lar development and how to acquire it, but they know nothing about the heart, They cannot use a stetho scope and find ou...

ABOUT BUYING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914

ABOUT BUYING COWS. A representative letter from an Eng lish dairy farmer in the "British Ag ricultural Press" says :--"Cow buying is a very uncertain business. There is much faking in the cow market, but horme-bred heifers are at least honest, Horns may be rubbed down, and udders stoked and other purchases may turn out deceptive owing to udders being wlat is knonw as fleshy. Many cows i ay milk well for the first two or three monlths,, and then quickly dry off, and te?te are just the animals whioh will bo ru. round and offered for sale after theLr next calving. Some cows which milked well in thier own homes do badly when transferred to a new place. Som.e are sold because they are kickers, os liable in blow or suffer from some I' r ')111' ailment.

THE OPEN-AIR BREAKFAST. WHY NOT USE THE GARDEN? [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914

THE OPEN-AIR BREAKFAST. WHY NOT USE THE GARDEN? Most people who have travelled abroad treasure a recollection of meals enjoyed out of doors. The dinner on a shady terrace, the refreshment and the band in a garden, the cup of ooffee on the boulevard linger pleasantly in their memory as a complete change from home habits. The English climate is usually believ ed, (remarks a London paper) to be the chief obstacle that stands in the way of any general adoption of the Conti nental open-air meal, though the true reason is more likely to be found in a British disinclination for noew paths. There are, of course, some whose al fresco meal, to be attraotive, must be taken in public, with a certain amount of ceremony, and possibly at consider able pxpense But for every one of these there are at least a hundred who can appreciate the charms of privacy and simplicity. For these last, pro vided they possess a garden, the ques tion presents no difficulty. Even the small garden that most suburban h...

III, A NEW SUBURB, Those who havoe oujoyed tlhe doubt ful privilege of living in a now suburb will wonder how Miss Marohmont, with an income far above a more compet ency, should have chosen to reside amidst all the noisy surroundings in separable from a locality in which were springing up houses of all sorts and sizes, But. here the good lady chose to dwell for reasons of her own; into her motives it would be irrelevant to inquire. Here might be soon the boeautiful simplioity of unfinished dwellings, the noisy realism of bricklayers and work men of all kinds. Thero is a depressing influenco in 'side roads"; we are apt to reflect a a little grimly on things in general- as we rest our admiring gazo on the hills with "'Thlis desirable residenco to be lot, unfurnished" - oxpoenses of rent, taxes, gas, coals, and servants; and as we shave ourselves, or eat o111 matutinal rolls and coffee, housekoeep ing does not altogether al...
